Here Comes Trouble

I'm feeling so enthusiastic lately about painting. Here's one based on a quick sketch from writers group. I'm glad I'm getting another post up before I return to work in Vancouver.

From one silver-haired gal; if that's one "quick" painting I'll love to see a detailed one!! Personally I think silver-gals look better in purple but that's probably just me! Good stuff... :o)

I love the way the white hair is so defined against the background... it feels flat and 3D at the same time...

Grinningcomb said...

I found your stuff via Drawer Geeks, which I found via stumbleupon and I have to say I have quickly fallen in love with your art work. This particular one is currently my desktop at work. Thank you for sharing your mind's eye with us all.
